10 Ways to Know Summer Has Arrived
- It’s hot. (Really hot—90+ degrees in May. It will be much worse in July and August.)
- It’s so humid you can swim in the air. (It’s really not the heat. It’s the humidity.)
- Your kids are finished with their grade-level curriculum, and the day’s lessons involve reviewing math facts and reading a book together.
- You can’t walk outside without getting bitten by a mosquito (or a lot of mosquitoes).
- There’s sunscreen and bug repellent by the back door. (see #4)
- Your kids (and to be honest, you too) would rather be outside than inside.
- Your kids are so sweaty and grimy from their outdoor activities that they often need more than one bath a day.
- Popsicles become a separate food group (or are considered a fruit if they contain any fruit juice).
- Supper often consists of sandwiches and salads because it’s just too hot to cook.
- As much as you enjoy the season, you occasionally find yourself dreaming of the day in late October when you’ll get that first hint that cooler weather is on its way.
